This delicious recipe mixes two big trends: The French 75 cocktail and hard seltzers. I personally love that it is just a little extra bubbly! This is another fave of mine from The Hard Seltzer Cocktail Book! (you can shop it below!)
Fizzier French 75 Hard Seltzer Cocktail Recipe
Mixing sparkling white wine with hard seltzer doubles the bubbles when compared to the classic French 75. Use wine glasses instead of the traditional champagne flute, because you’ll need extra room for all the bubbles in this recipe!
3 ounces gin
1 ounce lemon juice
1 ounce simple syrup (optional)
4 ounces prosecco or other sparkling white wine
1 (12-ounce) can lemon hard seltzer
lemon twists, for garnish
How to Mix:
✦ Fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Add the gin, lemon juice, and simple syrup, if using. Shake until very cold.
✦ Fill two wine glasses with ice. Strain the mixture into the glasses.
✦ Top each glass with 2 ounces of prosecco and half a can (6 ounces) of seltzer. Stir briefly. Garnish each with a lemon twist.
The optional simple syrup is for those who like a little extra sweetness.
